The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by House Rainey with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, flagrant waste-dumping, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 12.024 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 12.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,050 trillion IM Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 253,699 IM Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime is totally unknown. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 36,614th in the world and 4th in Mount Olympus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
